Hollywood Covers for Elite Perverts

By Will – (henrymakow.com) Feb 6, 2013

Just finished watching The Lovely Bones, a 2009 movie, screened here in Kalamazoo MI on local TV. 
A teenage girl is raped and murdered by a neighbour who happens to be a serial killer.  She comes to terms with it in the afterlife by orchestrating her killer’s downfall. 
The theme reminded me of another movie, Changeling, 2008. In that film, a young boy goes missing. Obstructed by a corrupt police force, the mother, played by Angelina Jolie, fails to locate him. We are led to believe that he also has fallen victim to a serial killer. 
Lovely Bones is set in the 70’s, Changeling in the 20’s. Both promote the idea that a depraved lunatic, acting alone, acts out his perverse fantasies – before inevitably brought to justice by the forces of good. 
There’s only one problem: that’s a fiction. 
Millions of children go missing all round the world every year. And we’re led to believe that the “lone nutcase” (sound familiar?) is to blame for all that?
Some estimates run as high as 8 million children reported missing worldwide each year, with UNICEF and World Concern estimating as many as 1.2 million children trafficked every year. 
The US Department of Justice estimates that 800,000 children go missing in America annually, over 50 000 in Canada, 230 000 in the UK, and 1 million in the European Union. Many of these children are family abductees, and most are eventually returned or found. 
But from one estimate that 80 out of every 2000 children missing in the US will never be found, we can extrapolate the figures to arrive at the staggering worldwide number of 320 000 children per year gone forever. 
The “lone nutcase” is a time-honored Illuminist technique – the patsy who’s blamed for everything from assassinations to bombings to shootings to serial killings.
Now of course, lone depraved killers do exist. Changeling was based on factual events. But this can never explain the sheer numbers of missing children. 
This may explain Hollywood’s obsession with serial-killer movies. “Explain away” these shocking figures by filmic sleight of hand
Both of these films were blue-chip Hollywood productions. The Lovely Bones stars the up-and-coming Saoirse Ronan as the teenage girl, was written and directed by Peter (Lord of the Rings) Jackson, and was produced by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks studio. 
Changeling also starred John Malkovich, was directed by Clint Eastwood, and distributed by Universal. 
Together both films garnered over $200m in worldwide box office.
